Freelang Mam-English dictionary

Mam is a Mayan language with about 500,000 speakers, mostly in Guatemala (including the departments of Huehuetenango, where the city of Todos Santos Cuchumatán is located). The population of Todos Santos is predominantly indigenous. Men and women still wear their traditional clothing and most of them speak the Todos Santos dialect of the Mam language.

A word from the author

This dictionary of the Mayan language Mam is only just beginning to be input. Although my primary aim is to learn Mam of Todos Santos, I am entering all the Mam words that are defined in the materials available in order to glean from this dictionary words that will be useful in the Todos Santos dialect.

It has been very difficult to ascertain which Mam words are understood in all the Mam dialects. There are over 22 different Mam dialects and although the speakers of those dialects can understand each other to a point, they are not really interchangeable. Three Mam grammar books and several Mam dictionaries and primers are the source for the information you will find in this dictionary. Many of the words entered here are common to most of the Mam dialects with slight variations in spelling and pronunciation.

Hopefully this will be of some use to those interested in the Mam language.
